As regards The Sun's article concerning CHOICES one must keep in mind that County Commissioner Susan Baird was elected to office with an overwhelming mandate to cut county spending on programs that are beyond the core services of fire and police protection and infrastructure. CHOICES is clearly one of those programs, and to even suggest that a renewal of this tax will be necessary while its board squanders a half million dollars on "wellness" programs showcases the arrogance of Paula Delaney and the other commissioners, except for Susan Baird. Not to mention their complete disregard for the financial well-being of the beleagured taxpayer.

Laurie Newsom,

Gainesville
